WWE Gallery: Behind The Scenes Of Wrestling's Biggest Gimmicks

The Undertaker, Sting, Mankind, Finn Bálor's Demon, Bray Wyatt, The Ultimate Warrior and more...

WWE

Quick! Name your favourite pro wrestling gimmicks of all time.

The Undertaker? Finn Bálor's elusive 'Demon' guise? The deranged Mankind? Mantaur? Whatever your fave is, be rest assured that three of the four mentioned there are here (no, it's not Mantaur. Jim Cornette likely still has nightmares about being involved in that mid-90s abomination.)

Everyone knows how those characters look and act in front of the cameras when they're working matches or cutting promos, but how about before they step through the curtain? This gallery brings together some of the best WWE gimmicks ever and shows them either preparing for the show, goofing off backstage or (in the case of one) meeting some personal heroes.

'Taker is here, so is his longtime manager Paul Bearer, and there's room for everyone from Bálor and Bray Wyatt to Yokozuna, Goldust, The Ultimate Warrior, Sting, JBL and Kane. It's a nice mix of modern and old-school favourites, and you'll see some behind the scenes pics you might never have seen before into the bargain.

There's only one place to start when it comes to gimmicks. "Macho Man say dig it, dig it"...
